Mark is married with two grown up children that both attended primary and secondary schools in Broughton Astley, followed by local colleges, then university.

Mark is also a Broughton Astley Parish Councillor since 2011.

Between 2007 and 2010 Mark chaired the Broughton Astley Business Forum which produced an 80-page local magazine of Broughton Astley community groups, sports clubs, and businesses.

Mark is a self employed Chartered Accountant, and since 2003 he has run his own accountancy practice from Broughton Astley. Mark had previous employments in PWC, Credit Suisse and RBS. .

When Mark is not sat in front of a computer spreadsheet or attending a council meeting, he likes swimming, hill walking, and volunteering as an Explorer Scout Leader for the local 14-17yrs scouts.

He has so far "bagged" 14 of the 282 Scottish Munros but hopes to complete a lot more, especially after meeting the Guinness World Record holder who completed the first recorded 5 complete rounds.
